Most of us were taught the genetic blueprint we inherited from our parents predetermines our bodies, our temperaments and our health. But in the last two decades, Bruce Lipton and other cellular biologists have discovered that, while our genes do not change, the way they are expressed may be very much within our control. Since Dr. Lipton first observed two cells with the same genetic code, in two different Petri dishes, behaved in radically different ways, his work has became a foundation for scientific documentation of the mind-body connection, and a bridge between science and spirituality. He explains that based on their genetic code, “cells can do a job that contributes to the growth of the organism, its maintenance and keeping it healthy, or a cell can get into a position of a protection response. Cells need the brain to interpret the world and feed back to them what they should be doing to keep this whole system alive and floating.” Dr. Lipton’s enthusiasm for his subject is contagious, as he shares the impact his work in the lab has had on his personal life, and on his understanding of evolution and the future of life on our planet.
Bruce Lipton, Ph.D. is an internationally recognized cellular biologist and an award-winning lecturer. He is the creator of several videos including Nature, Nurture, & the Power of Love: The Biology of Conscious Parenting (Spirit 2000, Inc., 2002), The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter, and Miracles (Mountain of Love Productions/Elite Books 2005), and is co-author with Steve Bhaerman of Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future (Hay House 2009).
